San Francisco Announces Online Tool to Help Entrepreneurs and Businesses Start, Stay & Grow

BOMA member buildings contain a significant number of small business tenants that may need assistance with applying for the proper permits and licenses to comply with City, State, and/or Federal requirements.

Mayor Lee and the Office of Small Business recently launched an online tool to help new businesses navigate the City’s permitting and licensing requirements. License 123 is an easy-to-use tool that allows entrepreneurs and small business owners to access permits and licenses at one convenient site, instead of contacting several City agencies, as they open a new business in San Francisco. In addition to the 92 City and County of San Francisco forms, there are 204 State of California forms and 100 Federal forms related to various business types. License 123 currently offers information on 258 unique types of businesses across 19 industries.

Small business owners can always receive customized, one-on-one assistance from the Office of Small Business regarding License 123, or how to start your business in San Francisco. Services are available by phone, walk-in, and by appointment, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. 5 p.m., at City Hall, Room 110. 

To schedule an appointment, please call (415) 554-6134, or email, sbac@sfgov.org. All services are available in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Spanish.

Click here to use License 123 to find out which permits and licenses you need to start your business in San Francisco.
